Over the past couple of days I've had some interesting people contact me because of my blog.

It's interesting to note that the idea of a recommendations and criticisms of companies via blogs can now seriously affect their business. That wasn't the reason I posted my experiences, but rather I needed to vent... now however, if you search for Omnidisc in Canada, you also get my blog.

Recently, Jeff Jarvis' experiences with Dell hit the headlines, and CBC's Todd Maffin podcast about the phenomenon.

Companies need to wake up and realize that the next customer they piss off might have a greater audience than they do.
